rangerred (956) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Poured into a tulip out of a 750ml bottle. Pours an extremely dark brown, nearly pitch black, with a decent one finger dark tan head. Pretty good head retention and lacing taking the abv into consideration. The aroma threw me off a little bit. Instead of a chocolatey, roasty, stout aroma I get hit with some perfumy, funky, Belgian notes. Almost reminds me of a Flanders red or something. Quite floral with a little bit of dark fruit. Not bad but just a little odd. This carries over into the flavor. Lots of fig and cherries along with just the slightest bit of funk. About halfway through and towards the finish, a little bit of light chocolate tries to come through but it is very faint. There are also some banana and bubblegum yeasty esters. Mouthfeel is on the thin side but also quite sticky. Overall, I really was expecting more stout characteristics with this beer. This screams Flanders red or Oud Brun more than Belgian ale. It is all just a bit rough around the edges and a bit weak.

Jamesthebrit (299) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Cherry boozy. Spicy musty. Looks fine. Brown. Like legit brown. Taste is spicy. Hebacious. Not really roasty. Cherry. Medicinal. Palate is light and dry. Overall tastes like drinking bitters. So hebacious. Not balanced to me.

Draft at Moriartys. Black pour. Slight head of off-white foam. Clean chocolate liquorice stout with a notable amount of dark red fruit. Blackberries. Plums. Dark chocolate covered cherries. Black jelly beans. Some molasses. Bit sweet. Bit tart. Enough drying wood tannins to dry out the finish.

voyageurmike (64) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2014
Served from growler in tulip glass. Dark ruby with thin head, more carbonated than typical stouts. Licorice/chocolate nose, pleasant enough. Tart fruit notes within the taste, somewhat cloying. Thin body for this style, but not watery. The long finish is that cloying part of the flavor that hangs around too long for this to be a great beer.

Black with a khaki head. Roasted malts, dried fruits, spice, florals and chocolate. Chewy palate, heavy yeast, dried fruits, chocolate, spice, sweet finish

trapped (908) - New York City, TURKEY - DEC 1, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown with reddish tint, beige spongy head with long retention, light caramel aroma, slightly bitter caramel-mocha taste, high carbonation, medium finish with caramel aftertaste. The high alcohol content is nicley masked; quite easy to drink.

Clarkdvm (177) - Florida, USA - DEC 1, 2014
Bottle in FL. Not as thick as desired. The oak flavor tastes somewhat artificial- overly sweet. Good beer but definitely not bourbon county.
